Covenant is much more of an important agreement than any kind of agreement between God and man, and man and man.

Theologically, it was an agreement between Allah God and some of his prophets. There was the one between God and Abraham that led to the almost slaughter of the latters only child, the one between Noah, the one with Moses, Jesus and Mohamed (PBUH).These were all mega prophets to show the emphasis of Allah laid the importance of covenance. It must not be broken that was why Ibraham preferred to kill his only son, by then than break his agreement with Allah.

We also have treaties between nations and diplomatic conventions as the Geneva and Vienna. Even primitive warring tribes had agreements between them that was binding and must be respected and maintained.

Like conventions, agreements are sacred and must be respected and maintained. Such was the agreement, convention, call it contract between Kanji Kemoh Daramy and the Sierra Leone government to chair NATCON on an agreed salary in 2006 for a bond period of three years.

Kanji is no mean man. He is highly qualified. Prior to his appointment at State Lodge he had many contracts with the United Nations at the top echelons. He has traveled all over the world including most part of Africa. He has always been demanded by international organizations in his field. Patriotism led him to return to his native Sierra Leone thereby committing an economic suicide.

Most African political parties especially Sierra Leone do not appreciate the value of the individual however excellent he may be in his profession. No sooner the government is changed all personnel, good or bad, excellent or mediocre, all go with the loosing party and so was Kanji.

The SLPP government lost the election and so did all those who served as functionaries, party cadres or not. Kanji was such cadre.

But Kanji Daramy signed a contract as a professional. His money owed by NATCOM by extension Sierra Leone government has been tabulated longtime say five months and has not still been paid even though the President, Solicitor General, and the High Court of Sierra Leone have all approved Kanji s emoluments to be paid to him.

PAY KANJI HIS MONEY NOW
OONA TOO GET BADHEART
IT IS A COVENANT
IT IS AN AGREEMENT
IT IS A CONTRACT
IT IS AN OBLIGEE
CALL IT BY ANY NAME
BUT PAY HIM

P/S what has happened to the FIVE BILLION LEONES in the account of NATCOM? Why pussy foot to pay a pittance to Kanji? or has it also gone up in flames?

HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!
